Been On A Train

Been On A Train
(Laura Nyro)

Been on a train
Baby did you hear the whistle blow
Been on a train
Baby did you hear the whistle blow
I saw a man
Take a needle full of hard drugs
And die slow
Been on a train
And I’m never gonna be the same

You got more tracks on you baby
Than the tracks on this train
You got no guts
No gospel
And you got no brains
He said I got one thing
Gonna ease my pain
Been on a train
And I’m never gonna be the same

There’s a bright light in the north wind
Mister, it’s gonna bring you home
I said there’s a bright light in the north wind
Mister, it’s bound, it’s bound, it’s bound
It’s bound to bring you home
He said sweet darling woman
Why don’t you, why don’t you
Why don’t you leave me alone

Damn you mister
And I dragged him out the door
No, no no
Damn you mister
And I dragged him out the door

He died in the morning sun
And I won’t go north no more
Been on a train
And I’m never gonna be the same
Been on a train
And I’m never gonna be the same
